Over the next decade we should see a material shift in business ownership as the next generation make their way into leadership and ownership roles. These new owners are embracing technology and are more connected to their customers than ever before. They are looking to grow, accelerate and maximise the value of these small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and Equity Crowdfunding provides them a viable and powerful solution.
With the arrival of Crowd-Sourced Funding (CSF) in Australia, an unprecedented opportunity for investors to hold equity in these growing businesses is now in play. It’s a win for retail and sophisticated investors, SMSF trustees, and a win for growing SMEs that need funding.
For the retail investor wanting to participate in this exciting SME asset class, there has been a lack of information, access to deals and a dedicated SME funding platform.
But now, FUNDSITION is here to support and facilitate this new world of investing and capital raising.

“BrewDog was born on the singular mission of helping people to love craft beer as much as its founders do, a remarkable story for the way in which it became a $1 billion brewery through equity crowdfunding as opposed to using traditional financing methods.”
